This week is National Knit in Public Week! And what better way to celebrate than to get some free knitting patterns! I found 7 great patterns. Something for everyone!
Knit in Public Week began in 2005 as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. In public! It is a way to show the world that knitting is not just for little old ladies. It is actually a hobby that is of interest to young and old alike.
So take advantage this week of all the local events surrounding knit in public week. (Usually sponsored by your local yarn shop). Grab your latest knitting project and go knit in public!
And here are seven great free patterns to get you going!
Mimosa Slouchy Beanie by Diane Moyer– This is an intermediate pattern that uses just two skeins of yarn. A great light-weight project for the summer.
Basket Weave Scarf– This project is a bit more difficult, but once you figure out the pattern, you can create something amazing!
Petunia Baby Blanket by Lisa Gentry– An intermediate pattern, simply due to color changes, this beautiful baby blanket would make a fabulous shower gift.
Cheery Scrap Cap by Kate Oates- perfect to use up your scrap yarn and make something happy.
Creepy Critters Chullo by Donna Druchunas– perfect for that teen that is totally hard to buy for. You know a hat with creepy critters is going to be a big hit!
Mitered Square Jacket by Julie Farmer– I love the colors in this one, and it is a surprisingly easy pattern!
Mini Key Ring Purses by Kathy Sasser– This is a simple pattern for making cute 2″ x 2″ purse key fobs.
